My Fair LadyA new restoration of My Fair Lady plays at Damariscotta’s Lincoln Theater for one day only, Friday, Oct. 23 with showings at 2 and 7 p.m. Audrey Hepburn has never looked more radiant than as Eliza Doolittle who finds herself at the center of a friendly wager between Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) and his companion, Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White).
